Comb Generator Emitter - CGE01

Comb Generator Emitter: CGE01

The Eurofins York Comb Generator Emitter 01 (CGE01) is a compact, battery powered, reference signal source that generates a broadband radiated and/ or conducted output up to 18 GHz.
When used as a verification reference source, the known output allows unknowns within systems or components to be measured or calculated.
The compact size allows small enclosures to be evaluated when used as a reference source for shielding effectiveness measurements.
The CGE01 can be supplied with a 50 Ω SMA output connector (CGE01C) for direct connection to conducted test systems, or to an external antenna in order to generate test fields for evaluating radiated emission test systems.
Alternatively, to achieve the best repeatability and compactness for purely radiated applications, the CGE01 can be supplied with an integrated antenna (CGE01R).
The CGE01 harmonic steps can be switched between 80 MHz and 100 MHz as standard, allowing more frequency points to be measured than is possible with a fixedfrequency source.
A 50 MHz/80 MHz step option is available by special request, allowing measurements compliant with chamber validations above 1 GHz according to CISPR 16.

The Comb Generator Emitter (CGE) was originally developed by Eurofins York for the evaluation of shielding effectiveness for small enclosures. In recent years however, the continuing increase in operating frequencies of IT equipment has made the CGE increasingly relevant as manufacturers seek to determine the characteristics of both their equipment and EMC measurement facilities at GHz frequencies.

Features:
• Stable output - Repeatable measurements
• Conducted and radiated options - Evaluation of both conducted and radiated systems
• 50 MHz to 18 GHz output - Applications across a broad frequency spectrum
• 50 MHz step size - Complies with CISPR 16 validation methods
• Compact and portable - Comparisons between sites and environments - Shielding effectiveness measurements even of small enclosures
• Battery powered - No power or interconnecting cables affecting measurements
Applications:
• CISPR 16 verifications
• Shielding effectiveness of small enclosures e.g. PCs, servers, wireless communications equipment
• Radiated measurement systems validation and verification
• Reference source for:
- Daily pre-test verification checks if required by the accreditation authorities
- Long term performance monitoring - Spectrum analyser / receiver pre-checks
• Investigation of reverberation (mode stirred) chamber behaviour • Characterisation of filter performance
• Cable loss measurements
• Inter-laboratory test programs
• Proficiency test programs
